This kind of crime is a result of the war on cannabis. This has me scared for others.
I don't believe in locking people in cages but these people can not remain free.
I urge everyone to be in charge of their own safety.
Most of us are not producing much, but we all know there are people who kill for $20.
I have been sick over this since it happened. I have relatives in Ohio.
While I am a peace loving guy but sometimes a person has to ............... for the sake of society.

Funny you mention it DD. I was just reading this article this morning, and thinking about what a messed up system it is.
I'm surprised protection rackets aren't popping up in states where it is legal. Or are they?
Here is a link to a ADN article titled, "How will marijuana businesses handle their cash? Outside companies might help".

In southern Ohio, if the pills don't kill ya, the cartels will... apparently. Sad state of affairs.

Anyone have a bumper sticker or T-shirt business?
Federal and Ohio state legislators and bureaucrats should be brought in as accessories to the murders.

Tom thanks for your post. I had no Idea of the cartels in the USA.
Someone needs to write a security thread for those who need it.

It's only a matter of time before headless corpses start showing up on Mainstreet, USA.

While this is likely pointing to the cartels, there is still speculation that this was done by person(s) known to the victims. Rumors swirling of a pair of pit pulls that did not alert the owners of people on premise, possibly indicating they were "friends" of the victims. Cockfighting ring also a part of the mix. Could be unpaid debts, jealousy, etc. This is a very beautiful, but poor, part of the state. Bartering is a common means of exchange, still. Interested to see how this unfolds....

I am feeling less sorry if they were involved in cock fighting, live by the sword die by the sword.
This applies to me too

This part of the state has been known, historically, for its outdoor smoke. Meigs County, etc. I am sure this family is (was) not the only one growing in southern Ohio. The cartels would have to kill half of the folks down yonder! I think there is more here than meets the eye.

Thanks for that - Tenderfoot
I have been watching this too and found myself led to believe it was "foreign" cartels who were possibly at work. Before rushing to judgement, I like to consider all angles of approach. Yours is a valuable insight - and quite supportive of my own line when it comes to legalization:
If everybody is growing this spectacular herb in their own herb garden.........who would be able to sell it for any real profit?
In other words.....there wouldn't even be a cannabis market over which to compete. Because if I can grow my own, I'm certainly never going be searching the black market .........for what I can grow in my own garden. (redundancy intended) They would, quite literally, have to kill every single one of us - thereby killing-off their potential clientele.

Now if they were dealing with, or for the Cartels, and the they ripped them off, that's one thing. But the cartels are in it for the money, its business. And making national news is bad for a business that's 'sposta stay on the down low. I don't see the logic in bringing this kind of heat to eliminate a simple competitor.

I'm glad my .02 was of some worth, Myc!
Also, I see it being counter-productive for the cartels to bring any unwanted attention to this part of the state. They tend to lay low in such places and would not benefit from the scrutiny!!

latest and greatest..... none of the 4 homes had forced entry... lending to the theory that the perps knew the victims.
good folk in those parts.... RIP !!!!!!!!
